FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
KEENE, NH, April 6, 2016 – The Libertarian Party, which made history in 1972 when Tonie Nathan became the first woman to receive an Electoral College vote, is notorious for breaking barriers on race, gender and sexual orientation decades before their mainstream counterparts do. In another groundbreaking move for the Libertarian Party, and American politics in general, Libertarian Presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry announced Wednesday that his running mate will be the first Muslim Vice Presidential candidate in American history.
Perry’s running mate is a Muslim academic and thought leader, dedicated family man, and entrepreneur, and has gained name recognition with the Liberty Movement for his work as the National Director of Muslims for Liberty (M4L) – an organization that works to advance the cause of liberty from a principled and Islamic perspective.
The Darryl W. Perry 2016 campaign welcomes Vice Presidential candidate Will Coley to the campaign.
During his tenure, Coley has amassed a considerable following by preaching a message that simultaneously discourages violence while encouraging open-mindedness towards Muslims.
The announcement of Coley’s selection comes in the midst of the Perry Campaign steadily gaining momentum in the weeks leading up to the Libertarian Party’s National Convention slated for the weekend of May 27-30th in Orlando, Florida. Perry, a long-time Libertarian activist and media personality on Free Talk Live, chose Coley as his running mate because “he has intimate knowledge and insight both of the religion, and the cultures of the countries [the US military] has been actively bombing or occupying.”
Over the next six weeks, Perry will be attending a series of Libertarian Party State Conventions to network with fellow libertarians and discuss his platform. A complete listing of events is available on the Campaign’s website at DarrylWPerry.com.
